Coming from a long line of female artists, including her Great Great Grandmother who studied at the Slade school of art, becoming an artist was always Jennifer’s dream as a little girl. She has drawn and painted ever since she can remember. After graduating from Oxford Brookes in 2009 with a degree in Contemporary Art Jennifer moved to London to work for two International auction houses, before relocating back home to rural Warwickshire to be a full time painter.
Growing up in the countryside Jennifer loves being in and around nature, and this is the main inspiration behind her paintings. Working from her home studio, a converted stable, Jennifer works in oils and acrylics and other mixed media on gesso board, canvas, aluminium, linen and wood panel.
The subject matter of Jennifer’s paintings are mostly semi-abstract and focus on textures and patina found in the natural world. She prefers to work gradually in layers and is constantly fascinated by the contrast between opacity and transparency. Instinctive marks are added along the way to give Jennifer’s paintings a sense of depth and focus the viewer.
